  • Everton Chelsea Ross Barkley

He went on to make 179 appearances for his boyhood club across all competitions and scored 27 goals.

Barkley was close to joining Chelsea in the summer but pulled out at the last minute after deciding to first recover from his long-term injury and then decide upon his future.

The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal at Stamford Bridge and will wear the No 8 shirt.

Former England coach Steve McClaren is backing Ross Barkley for success with new club Chelsea.

Upon signing for Chelsea, Barkley told Chelsea's website: 'I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started. I'm looking forward to continuing where I left off at the end of last season and hoping to improve and add more goals to my game'. There is hope that Barkley will add versatility in the squad in central midfield, as a No.10 or as a wide player in the front 3, making him the ideal player to fit in Conte's 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 formations.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce was resigned to losing Barkley - claiming the club gave up on keeping the midfielder before he arrived at Goodison Park.

It'll be tough for a lot of us on the crew to be impartial when we go into those production meetings and see you next year". All this combined led to the firing of Del Rio at the conclusion of his third season and the fight to get Gruden.

Chelsea's top-flight title defence has faded amid Manchester City's stunning form, with Antonio Conte's men facing a 16-point deficit to the summit.

Blues chief Conte said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player, with good prospects for Chelsea".

He now has a great chance to become a key player for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and England. He has good prospects for Chelsea.

U.S. accuses Pakistan over violations of religious freedom
Pakistan has faced global condemnation over its treatment of religious minorities, especially Christians, Ahmadi Muslims and Hindus.

Conte urged caution over expectations for Barkley. He's very strong physically, good technique.

"I've [managed teams who have] played against him a couple of times and he's been terrific and killed us on a couple of occasions".

This is not necessarily a bad thing for Tottenham, however, what with Barkley's less than impressive injury record, and his inconsistent form over the past couple of years.

Failed missile test hits North Korean town
But more recent missile tests have been more successful and have travelled long distances, with some flying over parts of Japan. The Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile was launched eastward from Pyongsong in North Korea's South Pyongan Province.
